Random goodness from Milk.Blitz.Street.Bomb.
We have no idea what to expect, so good luck trying to.
The Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) hit Toronto last week with the conference's largest number of travel bloggers, writers and new media content creators in attendance to date. I was one of them and it was my first time. Despite TBEX being the largest conference of its kind I had no idea what it was until approximately three months ago. Some background info on me: I came into the blogging game sometime in 2008 writing for a muay thai website. In 2009 I sold most of what I owned, caught a flight to Bangkok to train and continued writing about muay thai. My internet diet consisted of a handful of hours a week at Thai net cafes to let family and friends know I … [Read more...]
Hi Jen. Please explain the concept of your Barefoot Ballet/Pilates class. This class includes classical Pilates mat exercises with a flare of ballet technique, as well as some basic ballet conditioning movements. It is a class designed for all; both dancers and non-dancers will benefit. It is an opportunity for everyone to experience the grace and poise a ballet class offers. Some benefits of Pilates such as toning, flexibility, improved posture and core strength, efficient movement and body/mind connection go hand in hand with ballet. They are very complimentary to each other. How did the inspiration for it evolve? With my roots … [Read more...]
Ioana is the creator of Kelani, a dance based class that infuses Polynesian movements with core conditioning. Sort of. It's more than that but difficult for me to describe. Perhaps the difficulty lies in the not having anything I'm aware of to really compare it to. Hence the following interview. Let's begin with an explanation of Kelani please. It's such a wonderful mix of movement, I always find it difficult to define when asked. Kelani is an exhilarating holistic Polynesian experience. Intoxicating tribal beats, evocative hip shaking, mind-body-spirit and lyrical grounded movements with an island twist will sweep you away leaving your body drenched & soul … [Read more...]
What do you write when someone you know creates something incredible? Maybe I'll leave it at that. And a little bit of this: I met Grime, a nak muay, while he was passing through Buriram, Thailand. He had been training at Kiatphontip Gym in Salaya. You can read his review of the gym here. Now just hit play. … [Read more...]
This segment is best enjoyed after hitting play on the video below. I'm looking for ambiance here.... Hey People, Today marks the launch of the new Milk.Blitz.Street.Bomb. (aka milkblitzstreetbomb aka MBSB). It's MBSB redesign party time. I've spent the last month plus working on this baby. I liked the old site but it was time for some change. As MBSB is expanding I wanted the design to reflect its growth and make the content you want easily accessible. New Features A new homepage that highlights specific categories. A responsive design that adapts to whichever device you’re checking MBSB out … [Read more...]
SeanFuckingGammon is a Canadian artist based in Windsor, Ontario. I thought I'd catch up with him. First off, we've known one another for a seriously long time and I suspect I'm among others who had no idea you not only were into creating art, but that you were talented as well. There seemed to be nothing, then there was madness. You were pumping out pieces at an alarming rate and you don't seem to have slowed down. Am I right here? How and when did this all begin? Let's see...when we were back in university together, way too long ago, I had my heart set on becoming a writer. So I wrote and wrote and wrote for years and years and years. And never really shared any … [Read more...]
Hey MBSB People, This is a photo of my faithful but lagging Lenovo 3000 C100. I bought it in 2006. No DVD burner, a fan that sounds like it's chewing the hard drive and a backspace button that revolted and died following an ant infiltration. I believe they were trying to colonize the keyboard. MBSB was built on this baby, but the time has come to move on to a computer that allows Photoshop and YouTube to be open simultaneously. Introducing my Lenovo Y470. Not only can I start editing short video and audio pieces without losing a half day, I can clearly see what I'm editing. It was weird to watch the posted Chuwattana fights to realize, the … [Read more...]
